stds-802-16-tg1: IEEE-SA action: 802.16 Conformance projects renumbered
In accordance with an 802 SEC motion
<http://ieee802.org/secmail/msg03926.html> to renumber the 802.16
Conformance projects, the IEEE-SA Standards Board has today
(following yesterday's recommendation from its New Standards
Committee [NesCom]) renumbered the three projects, as follows:
P1802.16.1 as P802.16/Conformance01
P1802.16.2 as P802.16/Conformance02
P1802.16.3 as P802.16/Conformance03
The new designations are a bit long, but they get rid of the
confusing "1" at the beginning. The use of the "1" has long been a
declared 802 convention for conformance documents, but only one such
The new scheme also makes it clear that 802.16/ConformanceX is a
conformance document relating to IEEE Std 802.16. In contrast, for
example, 1802.16.2 could have looked like a conformance document for
IEEE Std 802.16.2.
For more historical perspective: IEEE staff instigated this change,
and I worked out the scheme with them. I moved the motion at the SEC
after discussing it with the Working Group at Session #25. It's a
minor nuisance to make the change, but we will be better off.
I have already updated the web site in every place I could find.
Please let me know if I missed something.
